Dave Lombardo Recalls The Audience Throwing Sod And Dirt At Dave Mustaine, ’It’s Just Not Cool’
Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo spoke in a recent interview with The Jasta Show and talked about the time when the audience disrespected Megadeth and Dave Mustaine.
Talking about their tour back in 1991, Lombardo stated that he remembers the time when the audience started to throw sod, dirt, and clumps of grass on stage while Megadeth was playing.
As Lombardo was saying that Dave Mustaine also got it for a couple of times, he also said that you never want to see your colleagues go through something like that.
Furthermore, Lombardo mentioned that he doesn’t know why people do something like this at all and stated that it wasn’t about the music that Megadeth made. Also, he pointed out that this is such disrespectful behavior for the musicians.
Here is what Dave Lombardo said:
“I remember Megadeth getting it pretty bad at one of the shows. It was sad because I don’t think the crowd or the fans should do that.
It was grass, it was an outdoor venue, Clash of the Titans, and I remember people throwing sod, clumps of grass, and dirt up on stage at Megadeth – they got it pretty bad.
There were a couple of times where Mustaine got it – or Megadeth got it pretty bad. You don’t want to see your colleagues go through that kind of shit, it’s just not cool.”
“We’re there, they entertain you and we’re not there to create any kind of war or any kind of animosity towards opening bands. But it is what it is, people are doing what they want.
I don’t think it had anything to do with Megadeth’s music. I honestly don’t know why, I just found it a little disrespectful and to the opening bands – and to any musician – to be treated that way.
I wouldn’t want that to happen to me, and I wouldn’t want that to happen to you either…”
